I'm trying to learn what's what and how to tell the good from the bad so I was wondering if it's because it's under plastic that it looks a little worn around the rim (beads) sorry it's a really nice coin with a lot of detail and I don't mean to put it down it's just the pic is a little fuzzy for me poor old eyes sorry
I am also quite jealous how our American members are able to post oldest finds in their signatures. Unfortunately our circulating coinage doesn't have such a long history and I can only image how exciting it must be to pull a 100+ year old coin out of change.
enworb, I have noticed the same thing about old coins in USA member signatures (might even have been XavierOfGreen). It just does not work the same to put "oldest coin found 1966 5 cent" etc. Even the 1952 sixpence I have found in some 5 cent coins is relatively new.
Pulling a 66 just isn't the same. I too have found sixpences when noodling 5c and 2 florins in 20c also but the oldest of them was a 1955 sixpence so not very exciting. It would be nice to have the chance to find something so old.

Thats why I love buying bulk lots of predcimals. The noodling is a lot more fun
